FOIL, ARMS & HOG

The Best of Irish Comedy: The Stand Comedy Club, Edinburgh, 2015

Sketch trio Sean Finnegan (Foil), Connor McKenn (Arms) and Sean Flanagan (Hog) headlined the Best of Irish Comedy showcase that I watched at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015.  I could see they were on the ascent fearlessly tackling a difficult audience by producing riotous sketches including an Addams Family style singalong.  The sketches were interspersed with self-depreciating chats with the audience and were brilliantly executed.  The reassurance and comic skill of the three leads was astounding and they have had a full show at the Edinburgh Fringe for over ten years which has been very popular.
